    Default No Confidence In Honda Civic Vti Oriel Brakes

    Salam,
    I have Honda Civic 2003 Oriel. Its breaking is fine when slightly the pedal is applied/press slightly/slowly, however when pushed further a voice Grrrrrr, Grrrrr comes, and i feel that I am loosing control on the car. I fear that if I will apply the brake suddenly the car will not stop and will produce the sound GRRRRRRR and will (God Forbid) hit somewhere.
    It happens even on small speed breakers with even a speed of 30km/h.
    Few days back in Karachi at night there was a little bit rain and the road was slippery. A bike on road in front of me began to slip and I being behind him, had to apply brakes. The car was moving at 40Km/H, i applied the brakes softly but the moment i felt slippery with a voice Grrrrrrrrrrr, i feared that my vehicle would hit the bike. But thank God all things were safe.
    I got it checked from Honda Drive Inn. They say there is no problem in brakes. No ABS light is ignited, Its functioning OK. Brake pads are also OK as per Honda, but i doubt as the car has run 130000KMs.
    When I drive, corolla GLI, XLI, Vitz even land cruser, i feel quite comfortable with brakes. i drive with full confidence, but at the time of driving Honda Vti, i hesitate to run it above 70km/h
    gusy pl help what i do?

    under inflated tyres will ruin the car consumption
    try pushing with hand a car which has 20psi air in tyres
    then try it with 30 psi (would have way less drag and would roll better)

    i saw a GLI which has done 90,000 kms on pirelli tyres. they still have shape. but 0 grip. its like driving on roller skates on them
    saving on tyres -1
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    keep tyre pressure to 30 psi at max in all 4 during winters / summer 28 psi, try not to make your car a hover craft by over-inflating. over inflated tyres cause damage to suspension as well. Honda genuine parts you can purchase from Nasir motors at plaza signal on down track they are 15% cheaper compared to 3S shop reason being they have own buying house in Thailand & Colombo importing via grey channel.

    Bro this car has pretty good brakes and ABS is kicking in. Keep tyre pressure to 29-30psi never over inflate and if tyres are not in good condition replace them.

    Does alignment and wheel balancing have an impact on ABS? How does wheel balancing is done on alloy rims?

    Brother get your cars master brake cylinder checked and bleed brake lines for air.
    All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
